When you walk into a fashion show at New York’s Park Avenue Armory and you see Chaka Khan, Ciara, and Russell Westbrook, you know you’re in for a good time.
But that was just the beginning at Tom Ford, as his latest fragrance “Fucking Fabulous” hinted the designer was ready to return to New York with a bang – and he did.
His back-to-tradition runway show was everything you wanted it to be: bold, bright, and yes, sexy. Read on for what you need to know from the first major show of New York Fashion week.

As expected, Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner walked, but other major models like joan smalls, Binx Walton, and Lineisy were also in the mix.
The designer does sexy, glam better than anyone (remember’ 90s Gucci), but for spring there was a clear menswear influence. Blazers were on the boxier side with sharp-as-nails shoulder pants. Low-slung trousers were paired with body suits that showed off both cleavage and pelvic bones. Binx rocked a sparkly tunic (or should i say longsleeves T-shirt) that highlighted a bit of under-butt, while Kendall and Gigi wore rouched column dresses that hugged every curve.
